ATLANTA -- Jordan Spieth is a bobblehead.

The first 2,000 fans who attend each day of the Tour Championship will receive a Jordan Spieth Coca-Cola bobblehead figurine, officials for the golf tournament announced Tuesday. The bobblehead will be given out complimentary beginning with the Wednesday practice round and through all four competitive rounds of the finale of the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup playoff held at East Lake Golf Club.

The Tour Championship will be held Sept. 20-24.

"We are excited that Coca-Cola is partnering with us to provide complimentary Jordan Spieth bobbleheads as a way to thank our fans for supporting the finale of the PGA Tour season," Executive Director Tom Clark said in a statement. "The FedEx Cup playoffs are off to a thrilling start. We cannot wait to welcome the top 30 players who survive and crown this year's season-long champion at the Tour Championship. With names like Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, Hideki Matsuyama and Rickie Fowler at the top of the standings, it's going to be an exciting finish to the season."

Spieth is currently second in the FedEx Cup playoff standings, trailing Dustin Johnson after last week's The Northern Trust, the first leg of the four-event playoff. Johnson defeated Spieth in a playoff.

Spieth won both the Tour Championship and FedEx Cup titles in 2015. He has never finished worse than 15th in the FedEx Cup in his career (seventh in 2013, 15th in 2014, first in 2015 and ninth in 2016).

The FedEx Cup playoffs continue this week with the Dell Technologies Championship in Boston. The field of 100 will be cut down to 70 for the BMW Championship in Chicago. That playoff will trim the field to the final 30 golfers who will be at East Lake for the Tour Championship.
